In the Bible, chaos seemed to rain time and time again. Jesus or an instruction from the Word of God would prove to be the solution to reign. It remains true to this day.
Chaotic situations and challenges are opportunities for to witness God flex his muscles, show how he lavishly and radically loves. God radically loved us so much that while yet we were yet in sin he sent is only son to redeem us from sin.
Things became very chaotic for the woman with the issue of blood. She had spent all that she had. Still, left in not only the same chaotic situation of sickness and disease, she seemed to have chaos of being an outcast without solution. She allowed her faith was an opportunity to reign. She reigned in her healing. She reigned in her relationship. She reigned in the fact that Jesus acknowledge her in a crowd of people. Who touch me? Her faith demanded for the healing virtue of Christ
Things got pretty chaotic when the disciples concerns grew as to how to feed 5000 plus congregants. Although factual evidence proved chaotic, truth prevailed as this was an opportunity. This was an opportunity for Jesus to share another experience or expression of himself. This opportunity would touch those present and those who were absent as the testimonies traveled throughout the land.
A young understudy of Elisha who lacked the vision and perspective to see the magnitude of God seemed to be overtaken by chaos. Had Elisha not prayed for his spiritual vision in an chaotic situation he would have perished. Without vision we perish.
We are seated in heavenly places. Our perspective changes how we see what others may deem chaotic.
II Kings 6:16-17
16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
